OK so points are 'in development'. Did I see on a German website that flexitrack is also a possibility?

Flex track is on its way, probably way before points will be. Also longer pieces of straight track, although it looks like it's not ballast track. Have a look here:

I'm amazed!

We usually model in 1:12 scale here at Bekonscot - with a 1:32 scale model railway. But with T gauge - it means we could actually have a scale 1:32 (ish) model MODEL railway in our 1:12 village.... this is incredible!

Will be scouring the (few) supplier sites and ordering this weekend. Will be interested to see any kit-bashed models to British outline.

And as the article on one of the blogs say, wouldn't it be brilliant to have a vast cityscape...

Hello everybody!
I first clapped eyes on T scale yesterday Shocked Shocked ; it was the first time I'd even heard of it!
Needless to say I've oredered a couple of ovals and trains and am looking forward to have a good play...
Meanwhile my imagination is coming up with lots of scenarios which I couldn't have envisaged before - which is fun in itself! Most of 'em will need pointwork and flexi though Confused the sooner the better!

Here's wishing you all happy modelling, and no eyestrain,

David

Hi all, I just ordered my first T Gauge 103 Series Chuuou-line train with a 120mm starter set as well as some extra tracks at japanmodelrailways.com. It should take some time until it arrives as they donīt have the stuff in stock. Shouldnīt be much of a problem IMO...

As a student I donīt have much room for a big layout, so T Gauge was welcomed much more than N Gauge or even the more expensive Z Gauge.

I started as an European H0 modeller, but changed to Japanese N Gauge later since it required less space and was cheaper than most other scales. Now that Iīve discovered T Gauge (which is even more cheaper) my heart was sold. How can one deny those cute little trains where you can model a relatively huge layout on a small space.

In the future I plan to make a T Gauge layout and take it along to local model train shows to show the world the awesomeness of T Gauge. If time doesnīt cooporate then Iīll just settle with a layout at home.

I hope to learn a lot from the more experienced members and eventually be able to create a nice layout on my own.

P.s. Iīm eager for Eishindo Kabushiki Gaisha to bring out the switches! Though I am a bit sceptical on the reliabillity of the switches and the future derailment issues. (Which will most certanly occur)

Hahaha! Thanks mate, though I havenīt been active for quite some time on the TT forums now.

Itīs like T Gauge is an enlarged form of Transport Tycoon to me.

Well, I joined the ranks of T gauge ownership today, with the delivery of one of Eishindo's promotional packs. It was sent from Japan on Thursday, arrived in Australia Sunday and I got it today - Monday.

I must say that after reading so much about T gauge and several mentions of that fact that none of the photos showing you how tiny it is really prepares you for seeing it for real. So perhaps I'm the first person to see T gauge and found it to be larger than I expected. Laughing

I also found it ran much better than expected. I haven't used the railer ramp much. I have found it relatively easy to hold a 4-car train and place it on the track in one go. The magnetic wheels do seem to find their way to the rails.

The only problem I had was a derailment that twisted one of the bogies 90 degrees to the body. Had to unscrew it to put it back in place thanks to the pick-up springs getting in the way. Naturally I've taken a series of photos and videos, and will get them online soon.

Plans are forming in my mind for a layout - naturally. But I'll be needing more track and scenery packs to do what I have in mind.

Will keep you posted. Very Happy

Some photos taken for another forum where someone wanted to see some HO figures with T gauge trains to get an idea of size. Thought they could be of interest here as well.


Could be a father and son with their just completed new model for the local model engineering club. Laughing




Members of a horse-riding club wait for the train.

My name is Shinichiro. I am T-gauge fan that lives in Japan.

This profitable site was discovered on the Web site of Mr.Carl arendt.

I want also to participate in your discussions that seem to be happy.
I insist. The train wants to run comfortably making a large layout because of a small scale.

My best regards.
